14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

This graphics card offers upper mid level gaming performance. The GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition GPU could struggle if it was to try and run the most demanding games available today, but it meets a lot of game system requirements found in today’s games. GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition is capable of DirectX 11 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 333 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Diablo 4 on Ultra - 2 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Red Dead Redemption 2 which is 24 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Borderlands 3 performs on this hardware, which gets a weak 24 FPS.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we researched the upcoming Diablo 4 to predict how the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 3 FPS, Medium: 2 FPS, High: 2 FPS and Ultra: 1 FPS. Next we looked at Red Dead Redemption 2 which was weak with a 18 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Borderlands 3 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 18. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 680 Palit Jetstream 2GB Edition running at 1440p is going to struggle at this higher gaming resolution.
